If you have seen the series on BBC you would be familiar with this show. Two renowned chefs take a tour of some of Italy's most beautiful and interesting places sampling a lot of the local cuisine, as well as cooking some of their own interpretations.
The recipes are generally pretty straightforward and worth trying (I have made several of the dishes described and have been impressed).
Watch this especially if you have just returned from, or are about to go to Italy!

Absolutely fantastic.....cannot wait for series 2 to come out on DVD.Extremely refreshing approach with Antonio and Genaro sharing their family stories making this , in my eyes , some of the finest and most enthralling TV in many years.

My favorite cooking show. I like the blend of easy recipes, humor, plain silliness, culture, great photography and the not so serious relationship between Antonio and Genarro. The show is never boring and I am always curious as of what they will do next. I hope they will do more shows ...

I loved this - have watched it twice over in the first week -- some fabulous moments of fun and friendship between the two -- and some wonderful dishes cooked that they made so easy -- it does highlight how wonderful and healthy the Meditteranean diet is - and how varied -- of course it also shows how only fresh ingredients are used - and nothing is wasted. would recommend this highly.

I am an American living in Sicily. I first saw Gennaro Contaldo on the Italian cooking channel in several Jamie Oliver shows. He is what I found to be the epitome of the Italian culture; fun, loving and all about good food and family. When I saw he had his own series I had to order it. I am so glad I did. The loving friendship he has with his friend Antonio is just touching. All people should be so lucky to have such a wonderful friendship with someone. I've never heard of Antonio Carluccio until this series, but I am now a huge fan. A man with a wonderful smile, appetite and all meals make for a good time. Their kindred friendship is contagious. I only wish they could come to my home here in Sicily to cook a meal. What a wonderful evening it would be. So for now, I will have to just be content watching them on DVD. I feel like a voyeur into their friendship, and what a wonderful friendship it is.

Having grown up in an Italian family, I loved this series when it was first broadcast. It reminded me of childhood, and gave insight into the changes that have occurred in Italy over the past few generations, plus regional variations, all presented with good humour and good food. It was also interesting to see some new approaches to major issues such as child behaviour and drug rehabilitation through producing the ingredients, and cooking and eating healthy and delicious food. I recommend the accompanying book, purely as a recipe book (with lots of recipes not included in the series) but it doesn't share the vision and information of the programme.

What an absolute delight to view. Whether you like Italian cooking or not, this video is highly amusing and informative.

The trip around Italy is fascinating.

Good movies about people, customs, kitchen, cities and the nature of Italy. I will watch new series, and certainly them I will buy. To the best the plastic holder on whom DVD fasten, - because on bilateral fastening changed, disks in the course of post delivery constantly выпадывали in boxing from fixture, and very much scratched a protective layer that spoiled pleasure from purchase. Now, each disk on separate leaning-back fastening, also is reliably fixed. - Thanks))

This DVD is great - full of beautiful, colourful landscapes throughout Italy, wonderful food, insight into customs and culture, both recent and past! The wonderful humorous relationship between Carluccio and Cantaldo is great fun to watch, and the food skills they share - from gathering food in the wild, and marketplaces - to final recipe preps and cooking is magical! You can taste every mouthful along with them!

A Pot-Pourri of travelogue, social comment, culinary exploration and culinary masterclass. All imbued with humour, mock criticism and sarcasm, combined with silliness in the correct proportions, that only 2 friends who love each other can enact. The only food video I would watch again and again.
